Apple held its “Spring Loaded” event, during which the company presented new products, including the next-generation iPad Pro. The biggest improvements to the new iPad model have happened inside the device.
At the heart of the tablet is a new M1 processor – the same chip that runs the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini. Apple claims that the new iPad Pro brings a big jump in performance compared to the previous generation. Graphics performance is over 1,500 times faster, according to the company. Also, it is pointed out that one can expect an all-day battery operation.

The new iPad Pro now supports Thunderbolt, a 5G connection and has an improved camera. The ISP and Lidar scanner can detect exceptional details even in low light conditions. The TrueDepth camera system on the front of the device allows unlocking via face recognition. The system includes a new 12MP ultra-wide camera. A new camera feature, called Center Stage, allows you to move subjects during a video call.
The 12.9-inch iPad models feature new Mini-LED displays, the Liquid Retina XDR, which Apple claims offer XDR levels of brightness. The display itself implements 10,000 Mini LEDs.
The new iPad Pro will support Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard Folio, as well as Magic Keyboard (available in the new white color). The company points out that the device uses 100% recycled aluminum housing.
